Book of Saints – Herculanus of Perugia


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (November 7) (6th century) A Bishop of Perugia (Central Italy), beheaded in the sixth century by the soldiers of Totila, the marauding leader of the Ostro-Goths. A miracle then worked is narrated by Saint Gregory the Great. A Translation of the Body of Saint Herculanus, Bishop of Perugia, is also registered in the Martyrologies on March 1. It is uncertain whether this refers to the sixth century Saint or to an earlier predecessor of his.
